Historic New York: The World's FairUnisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park (Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens, NY) Map it Free
Queens was the center of the world for six months in 1964, as the borough was the host of the city's third and most futuristic World's Fair. While some of the remnants of those days are still there for all to see, we're left mostly with the stories told by those who were actually there, and the Urban Park Rangers that guide this fun and insightful tour. You'll learn a little, and then you can take that Instagram shot in front of the Unisphere Fountain that you've been meaning to snap.
